A Nova Scotia restaurant has to do a lot more than just set out clean tableware for each new round of guests that dines on the bottom of Cobequid Bay.

For a limited time each summer, The Flying Apron Inn and Cookery in Summerville, N.S., serves lunch and dinner to guests on the ocean floor using the six-hour window when the tide is out and the bottom of the bay is exposed.

Each dining service requires a "huge effort," including lugging tables, chairs, barbecues, coolers and food and drinks onto and off the beach as the tide ebbs and flows, said co-owner Melissa Velden.

The dining-on-the-ocean-floor experience will be offered on five dates this July and August, and the whole season sold out within two minutes of opening Monday morning.
